Hero Arts Spring Catalog Release and Blog Hop

Hello friends!! Today we are celebrating the incredible 2021 spring catalog release from Hero Arts!! The catalog is jam packed with a ton of amazing new products as well as some tried and true Hero Arts staples! Today I’ll be sharing several cards I created with some of the new products in the spring catalog.

I am a big fan of every single Hero Arts HeroScape stamp set which is why I’m super excited to share my first card featuring the new City HeroScape Stamp Set and Frame Cuts.

To create this card I first stamped the city scene in several Hero Arts inks (Fog, Charcoal, & INTENS-ified Black Ink) on white cardstock and then die cut it out with the matching die. I then stamped the fireworks onto the front of an A2 top-folding white card base in several Reactive Inks (Lemon Drop, Creamsicle, Taffy, Thistle, & Key Lime Fizz) using my MISTI. After I stamped a firework in a combo of Reactive Inks, I then stamped the firework again with my MISTI so it was in the same exact position in Embossing & Watermark Ink and then heat-embossed it in clear embossing powder.

When I finished the fireworks I then stamped and heat embossed a sentiment in white embossing powder. Next, I ink blended the sky in Splash, Blue Hawaii and INTENS-ified Black Ink. When I finished the sky, I then wiped off any residual ink on the fireworks or the sentiment with a dry towel and then I finished the card by adhering the cityscape with foam adhesive.

My next two cards features the whimsical Life is Beautiful Stamp Set!

To create this card I first stamped a 4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of white cardstock with almost every flower and leaf from the Life is Beautiful Stamp Set in several Reactive Inks (Thistle, Taffy, Fruit Punch, Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, Key Lime Fizz, & Blue Raspberry).

Once I finished stamping the panel I then stamped a sentiment in Wet Cement and then finished the card by adhering the panel to an A2 top-folding card base made from Pebble cardstock.

To create this card I first, stamped the front of an A2 top-folding white card base with the flowers and leaves from the Life is Beautiful Stamp Set in several Reactive Inks (Thistle, Taffy, Fruit Punch, Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, Key Lime Fizz, & Blue Raspberry). When I finished the background I then die cut two Love You’s with the Love You Stamp & Cut Set, one out Dove White cardstock and the other out of Pebble cardstock.

I then adhered the die cuts together but off-set and then adhered them onto the card front. Next, I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Love You Stamp & Cut Set on a strip of Pebble cardstock and finished the card by adhering the sentiment strip to the card front.

My last card features the Strong Anchor Stamp & Cut Set.

To create this card I first stamped a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of Arctic cardstock with the Waves and Clouds Bold Print Stamp in Soft Pool. Next, I stamped panel with the anchor in INTENS-ified Black Ink. I then thoroughly dried the panel with my heat tool, stamped the anchor again this time off set in Embossing & Watermark Ink, then poured over sliver embossing powder and heat set with my heat tool.

Next, I adhered the panel to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. I then stamped several flowers in either Crimson or Pale Tomato ink, then colored the open areas in the flower with copic markers and then die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I stamped several leaves in either Green Apple or Emerald Green ink, colored the open areas with copics and then die cut them with the matching dies. I then die cut a banner out of white cardstock, stamped a sentiment onto it in INTENS-ified Black Ink and then added some shading with a copic marker. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the flowers, leaves, and banner to the card front with foam adhesive.
